Long Lake

4 posts in this topic

Hows the action out on long? I live like 1.5 miles from the lake and i practically drive by it everyday and always think about giving it a shot for a couple hours when i need to kill some time. Never been on the lake during hard water but spend a lil time on it in the summer, but not usually fishing, usually just take the boat out there to do a lil skiing and wakeboarding, and check out the beach of course. I see people are drving all over any suggestions?

Used to fish Long Lake in Long Lake (Orono Area) a lot. Nothing but huge Bullheads and Small Green Sunfish out there anymore. Carp too.

Believe what you want about Long Lake(orono area), more fish for me grin.gif

Numbers are low for all species except carp, but average size is big for almost all species. I wouldn't head there for a meal, but time invested in finding the big crappies, gills, bass, and pike may be rewarded with some monster fish. I have lived in Long Lake my whole life, fished it frequently over the last 20 years. So depending on your fishing objectives, Long Lake may be a good or bad lake for you to fish.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
